to imagine   [English shi]

I was here   before I proceeded on to India
once again I'm in Beijing   two seasons later
does this city resemble a dream occurring recurrently?
not unlike LA   it would seem a maternal reservoir
one must try some work   to imagine a place's purpose
one must seek some play   to palpate an era's pulse
can the lover perceive the beloved's innermost fantasy?
strangers fail to grasp the purport of obvious words
